Use GParted LiveCD to recover missing partition

What about booting into your Mac OS X system install disk and using Disk Utility to do the same thing?

Use GParted LiveCD to recover missing partition

Actually, that's the first thing the hint submitter thought of. I guess you glanced over this part:

I booted from the Snow Leopard install DVD and ran Disk Utility. It showed no partitions at all on the drive, and the verify and repair options were grayed out.

And this part later on:

Unlike in Disk Utility, the drive did appear to be partitioned [in GParted], and I saw my large HFS+ partition (unlabeled, though) and another small partition.
